Nice! How does he like the 300WSM? And have you convinced him to try 6.5 PRC yet?I bet they're humping along pretty well!!! I've been surprised at how big of a difference the brakes make on the big boomers! If the little experience I have with shooting a SilencerCo 36m on a buddies 300WSM is anything to go by, the recoil reduction will be nice! I have a YHM Resonator in NFA jail right now, can't wait for it to clear!

Cool, and since my 438 dollar Mossberg shoots as well as it does, which is pretty darn well as I've shown before on here, I can only imagine how well a custom built rifle would do... You might convince your group to try a Mossberg or Ruger in 6.5 PRC at first then upgrade to a nicer gun if you want to pursue it further.He likes it a lot! I like it so much that one throated for Berger 200.20x's will be my next Long Range rig, it's what the GRS chassis is for None of the guys in my long range group have started with any PRC's yet, we're a bit behind!
Plated 124 Gr 9MM HP bullets for plinker loads (1050ish from a 5" 1911). I would buy those or the X-Treme when I caught a deal. The PowerBonds are tougher, but both handle the plinker load just fine. Coated lead is slowly taking over that role as my plated bullets run out.what are the PowerBond bullets boxes on the bottom of your shelf on the right side?
Do they (PB) make, and have you had experience with, .451 bullets? Cause the Remington FMJs are kinda pricey for plinking ammo... I looked at RMRs site and they do have .451 bullets and I've heard good things on this thread about them.Plated 124 Gr 9MM HP bullets for plinker loads (1050ish from a 5" 1911).

Edit: Whoops, wrong PowerBond boxes. One of those has 450 .30 Carbine bullets from RMR, the other has 1K of .32 ACP bullets from RMR. I have bought 1K each of the last two times they had them.
I do still have some of those PB 9MM bullets, just not in those boxes. I have lots of boxes of bullets like that piled around, in, under, etc.
Ohh, now that I look at them knowing they are 285s, I can tell it looks more like that than 300, lol. But still, a 285gr bullet at stupid velocity probably flys a long ways! What velocity are you getting with 338LM?I wish can’t find any 300gr ELDM locally. I only find the 285’s ELDM
If you wanted to keep using blue dot 15.8 grains with a 150 was excellent.I was very busy reloading today! I completed 150 rounds of 44 Spl, 250 rounds of 44 Mag, and 100 rounds of 30-30Win! There is another 140 rounds of 30-30 brass that was primed today, but I ran out of bullets.
The 44Spl is a 240gr Hornady XTP over 8.4gr Blue Dot.
The 44Mag is a 240gr Hornady XTP over 13.0gr Blue Dot.
The 30-30 is a 150gr Hornady InterLock over 36.0gr Win748.

Vintage Deer... Mmmm.....Tumbling .40 brass in batches of 100. I think the mixture is closer to 500 than 1000 - which is fine. I don’t shoot that much .40. Also, opened the big freezer to put away some blanched greens and a pound of venison dated 2002 dropped on my foot. Nothing broken but it’s swollen pretty bad. It’s on the cooktop now with some jar-cooked pintos, brown rice and homemade picante being made into burrito stuffing. It won’t fall on my foot again?
The butcher we use now cryowraps everything. Back then I was doing my own butchering and used double vacuum sealed Food Saver bags - the heavy duty kind. It’s held up remarkably well. It thawed perfectly and smelled fresh. It takes longer to make than tumbling brass so I’m doing a lot of hand washing and cleaning my clothes with a roller. I don’t want even a hint of dust on me when I cook. It’s not just lead, it’s mold and mildew protection. The corn medium has starches in it.Vintage Deer... Mmmm.....
